We enjoy a complimentary breakfast at LaQuinta before leaving Panama City Beach at 11am. (I try to balance 2 biscuits & sausage gravy with rice krispies, low fat milk and apple juice.)
We arrive in Tallahassee and head to the Tallahassee Museum of History & Natural Science. What a nice outdoor venue! The museum covers 52 acres and has many outdoor exhibits, lots of water (or is it considered a swamp?), zip lines and an obstacle course. Shady trees keep it from being unbearable and areas such as the science lab and art gallery are in air-conditioned buildings.
Is the sea otter hiccuping?
Today, the John Spohrer wildlife exhibition opens in the museum’s art gallery. Mr. Spohrer has his photography book available and takes time to give us a tour of the photographs.
Dinner found us at the Ocala town square. We were told that Harry’s Seafood Bar & Grill has good food with a New Orleans flair. The dishes we had were quite good! And the gumbo is how I like it – with celery and bits of other vegetables in the thick broth.
